I took this short video in my backyard today. I hung these flags up over my Japanese maple a few days ago. I picked these up in Kansas City, MO on one of the many trips I made when my mom was sick. I got them at a store called Temple Slug a few blocks … Continue reading May 19th, 2018

Today's adventure is a trip to Victoria, BC on the MV Coho out of Port Angeles, WA. I am excited to finally go over and check out Victoria. I plan on finding some poutine and giving this classic Canadian dish a taste. Cheese curds and gravy over fries - how can you go wrong? And … Continue reading May 4th, 2018

For the first time in a long time I am cooking on a grill. The weather is perfect to be outside - sunshine and 67 degrees - so I am taking full advantage of it. I am using a hibachi which I was given a few years back. I had it in the trailer to … Continue reading April 22nd, 2018

Europe – Day 10 – February 3rd, 2018: Köln, Germany to Antwerp, Belgium


After a delicious bakery breakfast (gonna miss the bakeries!), it’s back on the train to our next stop. Our hotel is situated not only on the open plaza between two cathedrals, out the back door is a shopping center (with the previously mentioned bakeries) located in the train station. Of course we had to go … Continue reading Europe – Day 10 – February 3rd, 2018: Köln, Germany to Antwerp, Belgium

Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany


Last night we decided that our next destination would be Köln (Cologne), Germany after some recommendations from the girl who helped us yesterday and my friend Kevin, who had been there before. We got up this morning and decided to skip going into central Luxembourg so we could get an earlier train to Germany. We … Continue reading Europe – Day 9 – February 2nd, 2018: Luxembourg to Köln, Germany
